We’re at it again and we’re getting a little bit better at this lying lark now (maybe not on the guessing side though *Cough* Mike *Cough*) and today we’re exploring more crazy stories including vanilla smelling beaver bums and pretentious fish knives.

COULD YOUR DAY GET MORE EXCITING?! No, we don’t think it can.

Best Soundbite: Barry Taylor: “I don’t think cows mean to be tasty”

    I’m pretty sure all folks of North America use ‘beaver’ as a slang term for lady parts (you boys are so polite). You’ll often hear blitzed yokels in bars snickering about “huntin’ up some beaver” or “looking for eager beavers”. As for the moose, my cousin moved to Alaska and told us about the roadkill food banks. There is no separate word for plural & singular. Whether it’s just one moose or many moose, it’s just moose. When Barry said cows don’t mean to be tasty, I laughed so hard that I started to choke. Great one Baz!

    Listening to this about the beaver and vanilla, I’m not sure what it means to the rest of the world but Beaver in Canada is a double entendre for lady parts and I had to giggle that they ended up with those two stories.

    Speaking of beavers, food facts, and the classification of things- did you know that, starting in the 17th century, the Catholic Church has classified beavers not as meat but as fish? At the time the Bishop of Quebec had a lot of converts from the indigenous people still unused to the idea of giving up meat during Lent. Allowing beaver meat to be consumed was a sort of compromise with the Bishop’s new flock- the rodent is semi-aquatic, therefore it is classified as a fish and can be eaten during Lent. The same classification also applies to capybaras, muskrats and alligators- basically all semi-aquatic creatures equal fish if you’re Catholic and it’s Lent.

    Bacteria= have all the machinery required to live and divide (make more of themselves). Virus= needs a host in order to make more copies of themselves and are inactive if they don’t have a host.

    Kudos to Baz for undertaking a very scientific set of facts. Even if he could not pronounce half of it.

    My fact today came from this fantastic book by Bee Wilson… I highly recommend it. In fact, several other things I took from the read may well crop up in future podcasts too! https://amzn.to/2JEjGVi

S3 E4 – Watermelon Ban & Jellyfish Are Taking Over the World?!

You know what? This podcast was actually going alright until it got to your guys’ questions. But now everyone’s scarred for life. Great. The normal(ish) things discussed in this podcast included a jellyfish epidemic, soup slurping illegality, and fishing off a camels back. Totally normal, see?

S3 E3 – Edible Shoes & Overcooked Mushrooms?!

S3 E3 – Edible Shoes & Overcooked Mushrooms?!

The secret’s out…sometimes more than one of these are filmed in a day. You have Jamie to thank for ruining that. This week is all about eating shoes, most hated foods, and the fact that Andy Murray lives off a diet of haggis and deep fried Mars bars. True fact.

S3 E1 – Olive Oil Mafia & Getting Lobsters High?!

We get season three of Feast Your Ears off to a brilliant start with a talk about drugs, the Mafia, theme songs to life and FAVE superheroes. You may be asking yourself where the topic of food comes into any of this. Well it does. Precariously…but it still does. Next season could always be better I guess.

S2 E9 – Tree Octopi & Cool As A Cucumber?!

Sorted becomes a trio in this week’s poddy but don’t you worry, the facts and lies are probably wackier than ever. We chat about land octopi, running the world off of cucumbers and try to change the way you guys think about food.

S2 E8 – Choking On Ants & Oysters Are Vegan?!

Right, we’re calling it ‘Feast Your Ears’. We’ve committed now and we can’t change it. This week we discover that tea cakes aren’t as fun as we remembered, poop can be used as seasoning and James can fly a plane?! HOW did we not know this before??
